The tenth race of the 2021 Formula One season takes place this weekend (16-18 July) at Silverstone, England.
This weekend sees the debut of an all-new format, and an all-new weekend schedule.
For the first time in the sport’s history, a race will take place on the Saturday to set the grid for the main race on the Sunday.
Qualifying takes the usual Q1, Q2 and Q3 format on Friday, and sets the grid for the Saturday’s F1 Sprint – a short 17-lap race. The finishing order of that debut event will in turn set the grid for the Sunday showpiece race.
Lewis Hamilton of Mercedes won this race for the seventh time in his career last year, but it is Red Bull’s Max Verstappen who has been the dominant driver so far this season.
All sessions will be shown live on Channel 4 and Sky Sports F1. The TV schedule is below. Qualifying starts at 6.00pm, Sprint at 4.30pm, and the main race goes off at 3.00pm.
